Ann Arbor's Sisters of Mary lose 'American Bible Challenge' finals but win fan favorite vote
The sisters' team consisted of professed Sister Maria Suso, and novices Sister Evangeline and Sister Peter Joseph.
Even though the sisters lost in the finals, they won the fan favorite award (determined by online viewer votes), which means they added $10,000 to the money they’d previously won on the show to support elder sisters who are retiring from the order.
So thanks to the sisters’ wins on two episodes leading up to the finals, they raised a total of $50,000.
The Sisters of Mary posted this message to fans on their Facebook page on Friday morning: “Thank you to all of you who have followed us on ‘The American Bible Challenge!’ We were blessed to be able to show how to win and how to lose gracefully!! ha! And THANK YOU for the extra $10,000 from all your generous votes!! You are the BEST!!’
Here’s a trailer for Thursday’s season finale.
And here’s a short clip of the sisters sizing up their finals competition.
